Thank you very much. I'm beginning to get it in my head that some of this is
being done with virtual fonts that probably point to the uhv*.pfb files!
I've been including the Helvetica using the helvet package and that only
referes to phv* so I assumed that the pfb's were somewhere too.

Since there are special microtype configuration files for Times and Palatino
I may have to write one for Helvetica too.

Good Luck,
